DWI Arrest Yields Arson Charge

Huntington Station man implicated in East Northport fire after Tuesday arrest.

DWI Arrest Yields Arson Charge

Huntington Station resident Aaron Tarkin was charged with arson Wednesday related to a Feb. 13 house fire in East Northport, according to the Suffolk County Police Arson Squad.

It comes just one day after Tarkin, 25, was charged with felony DWI and child endangerment charges in Huntington Station.

Suffolk County Police arrested Tarkin on Tuesday after he allegedly drove drunk with his friend's two sons, ages 5 and 8, on a lunch outing. He was charged with felony DWI, first degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, operation of a motor vehicle without an interlock device, criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a hypodermic needle.

Tarkin was also charged with second degree arson Wednesday after an unrelated investigation by Suffolk County Police Arson Squad detectives determined he may have started a fire at 725 Glenridge Lane in East Northport on Feb. 13 at 11:41 p.m.

Tarkin is scheduled for arraignment at First District Court in Central Islip on Feb. 23.
